Experience Natural Science
Programming for middle school and high school students goes beyond encourages asking questions, sparking wonder. Through lab experiences and even mentoring and club programming, students can witness and even get involved in real time scientific research. Field trip tours feature a Burpee educator guide and/or scientist guide depending on the group, opportunities for questions and discussion, and some hands on experiences. We are thrilled to bring them into our natural science museum, and help you cultivate knowledge and inquiry, as well as bridge gaps to the workforce. Perfect for school trips, internships, clubs, and homeschool groups.
